After journaling for over a decade on what meals and recipes Sarah prepares for her family and friends, “Coffee Grounds, Banana Peels and Diapers” was created. It may be a silly title, but sometimes life is messy and can appear to get in the way of truly living and creating memorable meals for family and friends. Those meals can be special occasions or the everyday weeknight meals; they can all be amazing! Sarah Krieger is a registered dietitian/nutritionist (RDN) that has a huge passion for preparing nutritious meals, and loves to inspire others to do the same. As a RDN, Sarah has met thousands of people that hate to cook and really don’t enjoy eating or don’t want to put any effort into it. This quick read may change your mind.

Coffee Grounds, Banana Peels and Diapers is a quick, inspiring read to be enjoyed over a weekend. Think of it as a longer blog based on a “Life as a Dietitian”, but in a casual, fun form with recipes included.

I still think about that combination of trash that I saw day after day in my home while caretaking young children…the endless bananas a family of five goes through, the endless pots of coffee two parents consume during childrearing years and of course those diapers. It defines your life for a while and makes you realize that your life is all about those items. Even when I entertained family and friends during the coffee grounds, banana peels and diapers phase of life, my husband and I realized that the phase comes in quick like a mad lion and then it exits quietly like a lamb. We still had a lot of great meals during those nine years along with some really good banana bread.

As my father has said, “there is your life before children and the life after children.” This book includes tales from both sides in a practical, fun and very real way with recipes included. As a RDN, it is not possible to write recipes without including the nutrient analysis for you. You are welcome, if you care about knowing what you are eating! Just know that the nutrition information is credible, but does not replace the pleasure of enjoying the meal with family and friends. Enjoying meals trumps the calorie count…truly.
